I've been losing weight for over half a year now just by exercising and eating healthy :) but now I weigh 52kg (114lbs) and I'm 1m72 (5'8) tall with is technically underweight (BMI 17,5) so I know I should stop losing weigh. But I have trouble allowing myself to eat more or eating 'junk' and I don't want to give up exercising because I'm training for my first marathon. Does someone has some advice for me?

Yeah, eat more. If you're running long distance you'll never get fat. Believe me, I've been into long distance running a long time now and when I go up 5-10lbs (which is hardly a visual difference other than my abs) I just run more and it's gone within 1-2 weeks.
I eat everything I come across and then just use exercise to balance the difference. You'll rarely gain even 0.5lbs in fat a day (you'd have to eat 4000+ calories to do that), so by that note you'll never gain more than 3lbs in a week even while indulging to your fullest. So eat more, and don't worry about it. Maintaining weight is easy.0
